About This Center

Fungi Academy is a creative mushroom training center and educational co-living space at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.

Mushrooms are our inspiration to cultivate a symbiotic relationship between ourselves, our community and the ecosystem of our planet.

We seek to empower people to learn how to grow mushrooms. There is much more than just growing fungi for food. Mushrooms can help us to regenerate soil, filter water, clean up chemical pollution, integrate it in permaculture systems, grow medicine and expand consciousness.

Watching the sun come over the mountain in the morning inspires me! Holly

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
